Car engine wax thermostatic element

We at Prompt Auto Services consider these major factors when it comes to repairs:

First find the cause of the trouble.

Then access the damage and assess extent.

Then repair, replace or maintain unit.

On most vehicles, the most common repair issue is the cooling system – to address this, we:

  1. Pressure test for leaks.
  2. Check the warming up process – for thermostat operation, circulation/blockages, pump function.
  3. Check the heater – could be blocked, valve could be seized or not operating properly.
  4. Check the radiator – core for corrosion or wear, cap for operation and pressure relief, rust and dirt, fan operation, viscous operation, belt tension.

This is only one aspect of a motor vehicle and there are many other systems and subsystems which we just as thoroughly check, test and repair where necessary.
